## I am a designer
As part of a tiny team, I do a lot under the title of designer. [Aral](https://ar.al) and I work together on the holistic design of Small Technology Foundation. I work on everything from graphic design to web development while learning how to run a sustainable social enterprise.
As part of a tiny team, I do a lot under the title of designer. [Aral](https://ar.al) and I work together on the holistic design of Small Technology Foundation. I work on everything from graphic design to web development while learning how to run a sustainable not-for-profit organisation.
My work means I’m always striving to make privacy and broader ethics in technology accessible to a wide audience. You can typically find me making design decisions, writing CSS, nudging icon pixels, or distilling a privacy policy into something humans can understand. Sometimes, I [speak at conferences](../speaking/index.html "Speaking") and [write](../tag/writing/index.html) articles, too.
## Principles
Honest, sustainable, and independent design is important to me. I believe the web should be owned and controlled by the people who use it, and we who create technology should do so ethically and responsibly.
Honest, sustainable, and independent design is important to me. I believe the web should be owned and controlled by the people who use it, and we who create technology should do so ethically and responsibly. I like [small tech](https://small-tech.org), not big tech.
I also speak and write regularly about the importance of [accessibility](../tag/accessibility/index.html) and [diversity](https://ind.ie/summit/videos/laura-kalbag) in the tech and design industries. I first became interested in the web because I loved how it made information and shared experiences available to (almost) everybody. I want to work for a web that is equally accessible to all people. And to do that, our industry must be as diverse as the people who use what we create.
